This Reporter Went On Air Wearing Only A Suit Coat And No Pants, Not Realizing Everyone Could See His Legs

Most of us have already lost count of the days we’ve been in quarantine, working at home in pajamas and forgetting when we last had real human interaction. However, if you’re a journalist, going on air from to talk about important issues, you might want to put your pants on before addressing the viewers. But ABC News reporter Will Reeve didn’t.

On Tuesday, Reeve appeared on “Good Morning America” for a segment about pharmacies using drones to deliver prescriptions to patients. Everything was going smooth at first, but at one point, Reeve, who is his own cameraman now that he’s broadcasting from home, was framed in a way that made it quite clear that he was dressed in a suit jacket — but no pants. The funniest part is that he was blissfully unaware of the fact that his skin was showing.

People quickly turned to Twitter to call him out.

After people started talking about it online, the reporter acknowledged the mishap

On Wednesday, Reeve returned to the show and used his viral moment as a teaching opportunity. “I’m just here in my home, setup for another day of work like millions of Americans who are on video calls all the time now,” he said. “And a headline reminder for anyone who’s using Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, anything with a camera: Make sure you frame your shot.”

But people continued making fun out of the situation

“On a personal note, I just want to say I try to take life seriously but not myself,” the reported added. “So I’ve had a good laugh at this, but I don’t want anyone to think that I don’t respect and love my job. I’ve had a lot of fun and I know everyone else has, too. And I’m a lousy camera operator.”

So Reeve posted an explanation, explaining why it happened in the first place

Well, this is how we all work these days; like my functional analysis professor says: 'there's only one thing better than maths. Maths in pyjamas!". Btw, the guy caught without pants is Christepher Reeve's son.

Cute but seriously - what professional wouldn't check (twice!) properly and at the least wear shorts or sweatpants? Oooopsy!

He can always do the news w/o pants in my opinion

I agree. If he feels ok with it and doesn't mind - why not? I just don't believe it was completely by accident.
